SLES Vs Magma Tower Surf

How would 70% SLES compare to MT surfactant in terms of the amount I have to use? I know the amount approximately to aim for of MT surf in a grande, but I ran out and bought some 70% SLES and I'm trying to gauge how much of it to add in it's place.Tonight I'm going to experiment adding about the same amount, but I'd like some input in case this fails, and I'll update if it does work.See More

"This is actually starting to happen to my Heritage Grande... and I’ve never popped it open... but the stopped is almost sucked in, and the lamp keeps loosing water. I’ll probably have to open it, sadly. "
